Flight Examiners’ Manual (FEM)

Flight Examiner Manual

EASA's Flight Examiner Manual (FEM) provides a reference companion to the Examiner standardisation requirements and guidance as set out in the Aircrew Regulation (Commission Regulation (EU) no 1178/2011).

The manuals have been updated in October 2023 and there are now 16 documents for fixed wing covering the full range of licenses and rating. The new manual for fixed wing covers HPA- Complex Aircraft. This update also adds 8 manuals for Rotorcraft. The manuals help to explain the contents of the Aircrew Regulation and gives standardisation and best practice guidance to examiners for the conduct of tests.
